Mukesh Khanna slams Ranveer Singh playing superhero ‘Shaktimaan’

Veteran actor Mukesh Khanna has slammed actor Ranveer Singh stepping into the shoes of iconic superhero character, ‘Shaktimaan’.

Khanna, who played ‘Shaktimaan’ on the legendary TV show, took a swipe at Singh being lined up to play the same role. He said, “For several months, social media has been filled with rumours of Ranveer playing Shaktimaan, which has upset everyone. I have been quiet, but ever since channels have begun declaring that he has been signed, I have to break the silence. I have said that a person with this image, no matter how big of a star, cannot be Shaktimaan.”

Khanna expressed his annoyance after Singh posed in nude in a photoshoot recently. Khanna further stated, “I have told the producers, that your competition is not with Spider-Man, Batman, Captain Planet. Shaktimaan is not just a superhero, he has also become a super teacher. Now, the actor who takes on the role should have the quality that when he speaks, people will listen. There are big actors, but their image comes in the middle.”
